Derek Mountfield on a pre-season tour of Sweden. We ran round houses like kids playing Knock Off Ginger.

Years ago, I drove a black cab round Birmingham and picked up Dalian Atkinson and female outside Liberty's Hagley Road and took him to a flat in Edgbaston.

drinking with God himself in Mere Green!

also, Big Ron + missus from Birmingham Airport to his pad in Barnt Green, top bloke and if I remember good tipper!

Some good ones so far, good work.

I see many of the current crop weekly in my local supermarket (A lot of them live by me)

bumped into Laursen and Mellberg in Sainsburys about 2 hours after we'd beaten Blues 5-1 they had their club blazers in still and shopping for wine and snacks. The one and only time I've approached a footballer when shopping. I was with my two children and asked if they could sign my program (I'd been) Still have it and still love those two.

Some more random ones. Drank with Barry Bannan in Sutton (Told me he was off to Palace or Everton) Geoff Horsfield (in Flares ha) Got absolutely wrecked with Chris Price in Butlins watching England beat Greece when Beckham scored THAT goal. Watched a drunk Graeme Fenton get into a heated row over a burger in The Dome.

Ate dinner loads with Peter Bonetti (an oldie that some might not know, but a Chelsea legend I'm told) He is a family friend, so I've hung out with him a fair few times and scored past him haha!

Most recently (March) sat next to Benteke in an Airport lounge as he was waiting to fly to Belgium.

In Four Oaks, you see a lot of footballers. I was stood next to Clark at the express checkouts a week or so back and i said to my lad, he earns about 25k a week (My lad has zero interest in football and was like, I still want to be a Doctor ha, good for him)

I've encountered a few footballers in the past, mostly from the nineties, including five of them together in a strip club. Three were sound, one I didn't get near due to all the breasts in his face and another was utterly obnoxious (IMO).

Despite this, the wife can trump me. Before we'd met, she told Peter Withe at a friend's party that he wasn't famous!

Okay, but strictly no names.

One was known for playing with a smile. Scored a hat full of goals before moving on under a bit of a cloud with the then manager saying "If I'd got a gun, I'd have shot him."

The other signed from the Boggies under a cloud (at their end at least), had a nightmare debut versus Norwich and eventually went off to play on a much bigger stage.... at Middlesbrough.

I didn't say which was which, did I.....

About 4 years ago had a very quick chat with Brian Little in Asda, Stafford, it was quick because he was with his missus & little un and looked like he was about to take a penalty in extra time.

Met and said how do to Ian Taylor in Sainsburys, Burton, when he was playing for us, no chat he looked in a hurry.

Really must stop stalking Villa players in supermarkets Mad

Met and had a good chat with Roy wood in B & Q, Uttoxeter, not a Villa player but said he'd talk to me with my Villa shirt on, even though he's a Blues fan, still a top bloke anyway Very Happy

My dad & me used to go up to vp every year for villa Spurs payed for by one of our suppliers. One year we'd had a slight falling out with them due to a new rep being a bit of a tit so were treated to seats & a meal in the dircetors instead of holte suite & Ellis stand.
So as you could imagine it was full of ex players but on the way back to the bar at half time (after a few to many ales) I bump in to Jamie Rednapp (I know he's not villa) but after greating him like we were old mates we had a chat & he really is a lovely bloke seemed like he had plenty of time for you & didn't make his excuses & run as an aled up lad the as chewing his ear off.
Also I sat 3 seats behind Lerner and if I knew then what a useless clown he'd become I probably would of swung for him.

Mine are quite boring compared to the others. I met Brad Friedel after a game once, really nice bloke with a sense of humour.

Another time I ended up in the Midlands when Villa were not playing and went to Walsall to see them play instead. Once there, my mate pointed out Gary Shaw sat a few rows away. I was too shy to go and mither him so not sure I should count it as a Villa player met.

They all count mate Very Happy My lad used to get coached by Gary Shaw who worked occasionally with his mate in Mere Green to run a school. Lovely bloke! Oh I frogot this one ha! I played footie with Des Bremner, until about two years ago I used to play every Thursday night up at Wyndley in Sutton and he was there every week on the opposing side of lads (and sometimes on my side) So not only have I tacked him, but I exchanged passes, brilliant, he was still good then. Made it all look so easy!!
